Mango Shake

I bought a couple of green Philippine mangoes last Thursday with the intention of turning them into a green mango shake but by the time Saturday rolled in and I finally remembered my plans of making a smoothie, the mangoes were already beginning to ripen and yellow. They were still, however, very firm and tart and just perfect for a refreshing drink.

 

Mango Shake

I blended the mango chunks with a dose of simple syrup, about 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and lots of ice. Oh boy, oh boy! It was creamy, tangy and rich in mango flavor, just like drinking summer in a glass!

I prefer evaporated milk in my milkshakes as I like its rich, deep flavor but you can easily swap it with whole milk or even almond milk for a delicious vegan smoothie. Whatever way, this mango shake is a delicious way to beat the heat. Enjoy!
